This $100 Poke Ball Replica Definitely Shouldn't Be Thrown At Your Pets

Gotta collect 'em all.


Next year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise, and arriving just in time for Pokemon Day on February 27 is a $100 replica of the franchise's iconic Poke Ball.

The collectible from The Wand Company features a detailed metal shell and a high-gloss paint job, as well as interactive features such as a glowing button and animated, multicolor case illumination that lights up when the proximity sensors detect your presence.

You can even click the button on the replica to create your own Pokémon-catching sequence; two clicks change the light color from white to red and then green to indicate a successful capture. Each Poke Ball will be individually numbered and can be mounted on a stainless steel display ring.

Do NOT throw this at your cat.

Despite looking like a hefty device to trap pokemon with, the Poke Ball weighs less than a pound. The Wand Company does recommend avoiding the urge to throw it at animals or people, as doing so could damage the collector's display piece and "injure" someone.

This is just the first of many Poke Ball replicas that The Wand Company plans to produce, with Great Balls, Ultra Balls, and Premier Balls also scheduled for release in 2021. If you're keen to get your hands on your very own Poke Ball, preorders begin today.
